About this book

Power resources are dwindling rapidly, and the national grid is unable to supply our power for very much longer. This book critically examines the response by governments to this crisis, arguing that their emphasis on so called alternative energy, to the neglect of investing in other sources, threatens to plunge us into darkness in the short term.
